Approximately 300-400+ species of stoney coral currently cannot or do not survive in the waters of Fiji last I checked
This is from above and it seems to me the point is really easy to understand, diversity does not exist in these colder temperature locations. It has been repeatedly pointed out that scientists believe the studies show that temperature is a key factor in limiting diversity. The real question is, on what scientific basis are you keeping your tank at colder temperatures? Reference all of your literature that shows more diversity and better metabolism rates for more species of corals, that lead to a cooler temperature being better! There is a point at which this just appears to be people resisting change because the old ways are better .
